The problem is commonly caused by either a pressure switch malfunction, or a bad water inlet valve. The way you can tell is to leave the water turned on and unplug the washer. If the water continues to flow, the problem is the water inlet valve. If the water stops, the pressure switch.

To access either component, you need to remove the top panel of the washer. Locate the three screws that hold the top panel in place and remove. With the screws removed, the panel will slide back, then lift off. The water inlet valve will be loacted in the left rear of the washer (as viewed from the front). The pressure switch will be in the rear on the right.

To replace the water inlet valve, follow these steps:

1. UNPLUG the washer.

2. Turn off the water source and disconnect the fill hoses from the back of the washer.

3. With the top panel removed, disconnect the dispenser hose(s) and electrical connections to the valve.

4. Remove any mounting screws holding the valve in place and reinstall with a replacement valve.

The pressure switch is even easier. One connector plug and an air hose is the only thing attached to the switch. The switch is usually snapped in place along the interior cabinet wall with no screws holding it in place.

If the model number you have this listed under is correct, the part numbers are as follows:

Water Inlet Valve: 8181694
Pressure Switch: 8181695

I hope I've given you enough ideas to work with in narrowing down the cause of your symptoms. This is generally a very simple repair, that isn't very expensive. Any replacement parts can be purchased on line at the following websites:

searspartsdirect.com
pcappliancerepair.com
appliancepartspros.com
repairclinic.com

All these sites offer great service with competitive pricing, so shop all of them for the best price.

If you have any questions, or require additional assistance, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

NOTE: Running a clean cycle will not correct this problem as the source of the problem is BEFORE the washer. The clean cycle will cure many problems in the washer drum, front dispenser and drainage system.

Duet. What does F8E1 code indicate needs to be done to restore operation?


Check out the Link and the info below.
Question: Front Load Washer - Error Code - F8 E1 or LO FL Answer Product Symptom:
Front Load Washer - Error Code - F8 E1 or LO FL


F8 E1 or LO FL Code in display:
No water detected entering washer after 13 minutes, the pressure switch input has not been detected.
If the washer has an F8 E1 error or LO FL error, the door will be locked, and the control will be unresponsive. The washer will start a drain routine which takes approximately 8 to 10 minutes, during which time the pump will run continuously. The control will not accept any input during this time. Please wait 10 minutes before trying to perform any functions.
Check the water supply:

Turn on the water. Check the household water supply to see if the hot and cold water faucets are turned on. Make sure to open both faucets completely for proper fill.

NOTE: Both Hot and Cold water must be supplied to the washer.

Whirlpool recommends that appliances be direct connected to the water supply for optimum machine performance.
If a "flood saver" device is being considered:
  • Check with the manufacturer of the device to ensure it will not affect the performance of the appliance.

  • Whirlpool has experienced that "flood safety" devices can interfere with the performance of the appliance. Whirlpool typically does not recommend these devices.
Two types of "flood-saver" devices, hoses and valves are illustrated below. anti%20flood%20hose%202.jpeg floodsafe%203.jpeg Whirlpool Duet Washer F8 Code Appliance Repair Forum

Washer slowly fills with water when not in use. I


I have the same problem. The only problem that I have is not knowing how much water will eventually go into the tub. It takes about 4 or 5 days to accumulate about a gallon. I called the Whirlpool service center and the woman said they recomend turning the water off after each use-I think this is ridiculous. If going away on vaca maybe. Rob

Whirlpool Duet washer leaking during clean washer cycle


the highest water fill cycle for your waher is the clean cycle.it will fill up with 2x the normal amount of water in this cycle than any other.look for a cut or wrinkle in your door boot(grey rubber outer ring that seals between door and boot)if you find one,only fix would be to replace door boot.also clean inner door glass that comes in contact with door boot ring,any hard water build up or sediment(dog,cat or human hair)will break the seal and allow it to leak.good luck
